EBBP transitioning to ACP
Posted Monday, December 20th, 2021
Per the FCC, the Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) will become the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) benefit on December 31, 2021. Households enrolled in the EBB program as of December 31, 2021 will continue to receive their current monthly benefit until March 1, 2022.
After March 1, 2022, the discounted rate will change from up to $50 per month to up to $30 per month for eligible households not located on qualifying Tribal lands. The monthly benefit will remain up to $75 per month for households on qualifying Tribal Lands. Subscribers maintain the option to switch service offerings to another provider at any time.
The Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC) will contact you if you need to take any additional steps to retain your ACP benefit.
Congress created the ACP, a new, long-term $14 billion program, to replace the EBB program. For more information about the ACP and these changes, please visit the FCC website www.FCC.gov/ACP.
